That's some funny s**t. Even if that did happen, people would work a way around it!
As long as I've got a face
You've got a place to sit
Doesn't really have anything to do with copying or filesharing - they can still be copied like any other DVD. The only thing it will do is stop you getting late fees at the rental store - sounds like a good thing.
Sounds like the start of Mission Impossible (the DVD will self-destruct in 5 sec).
why do they want to do this.
This makes a mockery of the record industries claims that cds are priced reasonably.
If these people can charge less for a disc like this that is gonna break after a few days how the hell can they charge £13 for a cd that costs nothing to make.
just a though
thats just plain stupid
ah well i myself hate disney movies anyway so it wont really affect me
fuck Derby County
I just saw something on the news on TechTV about this. It's just a DVD stored in an air tight containter. You crack the container to get the DVD out. After a set amount of hours (something to do with the chemicles) the DVD will break/stop working/done for. You don't return it to the video store, you just keep it till it stops working. And they said that when you rent these it'll cost 1-2 dollars more.Originally posted by amphoteric88@17 May 2003 - 00:31
i've been thinking about this in the back of my mind for a little while.
how exactly do the shops which rent out the dvd's stop them from decaying?
are they stored in an atmosphere with no oxidising agents when they're in the shop?
or do they just get thrown away when they've been rented once?
